Ruth was a cherished wife, mother, and friend to many. Ruth had a passion for cooking, and she was renowned for her excellent country dishes. Her specialty was green beans and biscuits that were always a hit among family and friends. Ruth enjoyed her church family and loved working with children. She often opened her home for Sunday night Redbook singings, where she would share her love for music by singing and playing the piano with those around her. In addition to her skills in the kitchen and music. Ruth had a green thumb and took great pleasure in tending to her garden. She also had a talent for sewing and made clothes for her children. It was while she was plowing in a cotton field where Mr. Jackson asked her out on their first date with whom she shared many beautiful years. Ruth's warm smile and gentle spirit touched the lives of all who knew her. She will be deeply missed by her surviving family members including her daughter, relatives and friends.
